“Fantastic hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

My 22 year old daughter & I just returned from a fantastic stay at this lovely hotel. From the moment our cab pulled up to the curb, the staff made us feel very special. I had mentioned this was a college graduation gift for my daughter & upon check in, Matt told her "congratulations". This was a nice surprise for her! All of the staff were very knowledgeable in answering all our questions & extremely helpful with subway questions. I always research extensively before making reservations & everything I read about the Hotel Elysee was positive & true. Our room was beautifully decorated & very comfortable. The daily breakfasts & afternoon snacks were very filling & relaxing. I especially enjoyed the live music in the Monkey Bar during the weekend & it was a great way to relax after a busy day of sightseeing. I've already told my husband I have to take him to the Hotel Elysee as he will love all their attention to detail!

I stayed at the Elysee for just a couple days. It was beyond excellent. The staff was,very professional and accommodating. The room was very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The dining room fabulous. I will most definitely return to the Elysee.

This is a lovely hotel, full of "Olde-Worlde" charm. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is plentiful with considerable choices and the evening wine and cheese time is very pleasant. Our room is a good size with a comfy bed; nice linen, towels etc. the only downside is that the a/c is rather noisy which has disturbed us during the night but we need it, so have tried to ignore it! The hotel is in a very convenient location for access to nice restaurants and Central Park; it doesn't take too long to reach Times Square area either.

Room Tip: We are on the top floor so not sure how to avoid a/c noises.

Because you feel cared for, from the moment you make your booking to the moment you check out. Upon making your reservation, you receive a friendly confirmation notice. Just before arrival, they get in touch to see of there is anything that you need. We always ask for help with restaurant recommendations and bookings and are always happy with the advice we get.

Once you arrive, it seems there are always three people manning the small front desk - we have never had to line up or wait. They remember your name and often follow up, asking how was the restaurant, etc. The ladies in the second floor lounge are so efficient and friendly - a real home away from home.

This has been our experience every time we have stayed here but our recent visit topped them all. The hotel arranged an independent limo service for us to the airport. The car eventually got us to Newark but not without a hiccup or two. When we got home, I wrote the hotel a brief note to tell them what had happened and that they might want to consider a different limo service. Half an hour later, I got a call from the General Manager himself who was apologetic about something that was really beyond his control. For two days, he followed up, got in touch with the owners of the limo company and kept in constant contact with me. He could not have done more for us and the situation was resolved to our full satisfaction. That to me is the definition of attentive service. Needless to say, we would not consider any other hotel for our annual visit to New York.

Great hotel, great staff! This was our first visit to NYC. The Hotel Elysee was a fabulous find. The staff was wonderful and helped us navigate our way through the city. Our room faced 54th street and it was surprisingly quiet! We arrived way earlier than the 3PM check-in and our room was not available, but the staff took our bags, mapped out nearby restaurants that were family friendly and while we were eating, called us to let us know our room was ready! Breakfast was great, snacks available throughout the day and evening, comfortable beds and a great location has made this hotel our new favorite! We will be back!

Room Tip: We traveled with our two young boys. The suite gave us plenty of room...the boys had the sofa bed w...

Very nice room. Small bathroom without a separate shower.
If the room is on the front (best view) you hear the noise of the road. If it overlooks the back is more quiet, but dark.
Some problems to find a sitting place at breakfast, due to a limited number of sitting places and tables.
The staff is excellent, always helpful.

second visit proved just as satisfying. We love this property. It s very small but the location is amazing -- within a few blocks you have access to world class shopping, every imaginable cuisine, MOMA, Central Park, Rockafeller Center.
Inside an oasis of hospitality and good taste. The staff here is genuinely friendly.
Not aloof but helpful. The rooms are old school and charming and the real bonus is the clubroom (clubby it is) serving complimentary breakfast, all day coffee and cookies and evening wine and hors d'ouevers!
